Speed dating for real people dating a non believer
Shockingly, but perhaps not surprisingly, women rated 80% of men below-average.
Let that sink in for a minute: It doesn’t take a post-grad in statistics to understand that is some pretty skewed data.
The average woman fantasizes about being swept off her feet by Prince Charming while doing some mundane task like buying groceries, sitting in a coffee shop, or buying a book.
Men and women are rotated to meet each other over a series of short "dates" usually lasting from three to eight minutes depending on the organization running the event.
Even basic eye contact is not possible through a computer. They crave the attention of men, even those they’d label the C word. What happens next to the men on these sites is a lowering of standards. These women have their self-worth filled as well as their inboxes.
Just as adding more currency into an economy devalues all the other currency while increasing prices, adding more messages to the dating economy devalues other messages and inflates the self-perceived value of the girls. They begin to think they are more attractive than they really are and begin responding to messages more selectively, thus continuing the cycle.
Luckily, the ones most affected by this are the women you’d likely avoid anyways. Confidence is very difficult to express with a photo or a description.
The best profiles show humour and cockiness; true confidence is elusive.
If only 20% are above average how many of us are actually considered good looking?
